I just looked at Matt's original post and he does say the car's gone 253 000 km. Good chance the slave cylinder's the original, so it would be an advantage to recondition it at the same time. My thing is that I really hate the mess with hydraulics. OK I'm good at it, redone many brakes as well, and I have a purpose-built pressure bleeder kit but I'm a lazy bastard and I try to avoid that fluid whenever I can ;-) /Robert
